Costs and Payment Options for Porcelain Veneers

One of the most versatile and popular dental care treatments in recent years has been porcelain dental veneers. They’re an extremely popular option for achieving smile makeover results, but that are not an inexpensive treatment option.

The team at our cosmetic dentistry center would like to discuss porcelain veneers and go over some of the basics regarding their cost and what patients can do to pay for treatment.

About Porcelain Veneers

Briefly, porcelain veneers are thin shells of specially crafted dental ceramic. They are adhered to the front portions of the teeth in order to improve overall appearance. Porcelain dental veneers are a great option for treating the following aesthetic dental problems:

  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Tooth misalignment

The Average Cost of Porcelain Veneers

The average cost of porcelain veneers treatment can vary based on a wide range of factors. Because of this, we don’t believe that posting an average national price or even a price range is helpful to telling the whole story of care. During your visit at our practice, we will be sure to go over your situation and provide a custom price quote regarding your porcelain veneers treatment.

Factors That Affect the Total Cost of Porcelain Veneers

Some of the factors that affect the total cost of porcelain veneers are:

  • The geographic location of the dental care practice
  • The credentials and training of the dentist/dental care staff
  • The complexity of a patient’s aesthetic problems
  • The number of porcelain veneers required
  • The type of porcelain veneer used
  • Combination procedures (i.e., smile makeovers)
  • Special promotions unique to individual practices

Dental Insurance and Porcelain Veneers

In general, porcelain veneers are not covered by dental health insurance. They are considered an elective or cosmetic procedure rather than a necessary part of care. It may be worth discussing this with your cosmetic dentist and your insurance provider just in case, however, as circumstances and policies can vary.

Financing Options and Porcelain Veneers

Because the cost of porcelain veneers can prove a major financial burden to households and individuals, there are financing options available that can put porcelain veneers treatment within reach.

It’s helpful to think about these monthly payment plans in a similar way as credit cards. A trusted-third party lender will pay for the total cost of the dental treatment. The patient will then pay back this loan to the lender, budgeting accordingly month to month. A reasonable interest rate will apply.

Weighing All Options for You and Your Needs

In addition to porcelain veneers, there are many other kinds of dental treatments out there to keep in mind that can improve the overall appearance of your smile. During the consultation process, we can discuss these alternatives as well as porcelain veneers treatment to ensure that you get the care that you deserve.

Full Mouth Reconstruction Candidates

Many people in need of serious dental treatment are dealing with several different dental problems simultaneously. Restoring the dental health of such patients will require involved dental treatments. When patients visit our Denver cosmetic dentistry center, we will be sure to discuss all of their options for effective care in full detail. Some patients may be best helped through the use of a full mouth reconstruction. We’d like to look at this restorative dental care treatment right now.

Customized Treatment for Your Unique Needs

Each full mouth reconstruction is customized to the needs of the patient. Since each patient will have unique needs of their own, we can never approach a full reconstruction with a one-size-fits-all philosophy. When you meed with a cosmetic and restorative dentist in Denver, you’ll be able to learn what the best treatment plan is for your needs.

Ideal Candidates – Patients with Tooth Decay and Tooth Damage

Severe tooth decay and tooth damage means dealing with weakened teeth that may be discolored and aesthetically unappealing as well. For minor tooth decay, dental fillings will be used. More substantial damage and decay will best be addressed with inlays and onlays, which are dental restorations that are able to replace the biting surfaces of the teeth. In extreme cases of damage and decay, dental crowns are the best option to avoid tooth extraction.

Ideal Candidates – Patients Who are Missing Teeth

When you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, it can adversely affect your dental health as well as the aesthetics of your smile. Removable dental bridges and dentures can be a great solution for restoring your smile, though these dental appliances can be anchored in place with greater strength using dental implants. Denver dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone and gum tissue, allowing for stability and hold comparable to natural tooth roots.

Ideal Candidates – Patients with Soft Tissue Problems

While the teeth are important, you should never take for granted the health and condition of the gums. We have a number of restorative dentistry treatments available to deal with gum recession and different stages of gum disease, allowing patients to have a healthy gumline again. During these treatments, it’s important to first address the gum disease or gum problem and then any tooth decay below the gumline before looking into grafting options.

Ideal Candidates – Patients Dealing with Tooth and Jaw Alignment Issues

The health of the jaw joint and the alignment of the teeth cannot be taken for granted if you want to have the best possible dental health. In fact, tooth misalignment can result in TMJ disorders and other serious dental health problems. That’s why full mouth reconstructions combine general dental care as well as advanced orthodontic treatment, allowing you to have a properly aligned and healthy smile.
